options i915 modeset=0
The intel 915 was a congenitally handicapped video card that m$ went to great lengths to get off new motherboards before they could release m$ vista. Have you one of those?

Forgive my absolute lack of interest on all things Intel(I never forgave them their little MMX swindle) but wasn't there an i945 driver? Does that do any better?

Killing KMS usually gets you limping, but is never a fix.

i915 was used by default, may be I'll try to force i945..
But I don't think it could help since lines appeared even without Xorg installed, the problem it seems in edid-kms-framebuffer.

I agree, disabling KMS is not a good solution.
Hope that one day I'l find liveDVD system working with intel drivers

I would at least experiment with the vesa driver - and the OSS or proprietary drivers if such exist. Intel acknowledge the existence of linux. You may get a working screen with software rendering - not the fastest, but usable.

3D is working now
After libgl1-mesa-swx11 installation

Some 3d windows are transparent to desktop, but nevermind

I will wait if proper support appears in kernels, etc..

Many thanks to business_kid for attention

Well, glad to help. It's also an interesting game to figure out what's going on.
I learned a lot in the early days by having some @$#%! card that I could not get running on X. All the automagic setting stuff was much less sophisticated then, and I eventually nailed down that X couldn't set the correct dot clock. If it was even 0.1 out (I imagine 0.1Mhz) The mode wouldn't run!
